Let’s Talk-“My Time with General Colin Powell: Stories of Kindness, Diplomacy, and Protocol”

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

At some point, we have all wondered what it would have been like to be the proverbial “fly on the wall to history.” In My Time with General Colin Powell: Stories of Kindness, Diplomacy, and Protocol, Leslie Lautenslager pulls back the curtain on her 25 years spent at the side of one of America’s greatest public servants, General Colin L. Powell, sharing a very personal narrative of his time as America’s chief diplomat and his professional speaking career.

Through the pages of her book, Leslie Lautenslager shares the stories of her time with General Powell, allowing us, two years after his death, the privilege of seeing a very personal side of Colin Powell that few knew but can now be added to our collective history on one of America’s greatest heroes.

To the world, he was a military leader, a diplomat, a senior statesman, and a tireless advocate for young people. To his family and close friends, he was so much more — funny, charming, self-deprecating, practical, generous, gracious and kind. He was also a song and dance man, a car aficionado, a handyman, a lover of comfort food, a standup comedian, and a storyteller.

In celebration of Black History month, please join us to hear Leslie’s stories from behind-the-scenes with General Colin Powell.  This event is FREE and open to the community.
